Happy 10th Birthday to Top Ten Tuesday!


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic Top Ten Tuesday Turns 10! Option 1: pick a past TTT topic you’ve done and re-do/update it (Perhaps you’d remove certain books you put on the list back when you first wrote it, or perhaps you have 10 MORE books you’d add to that list now. You could also re-visit TBR posts, whether seasonal or series you need to finish, etc., and tell us if you’ve read them yet or not. Any variation of this idea works. Feel free to be creative.) Option 2: pick a past TTT topic you wish you’d done, but didn’t get a chance to do.

I decided to revisit a recent topic where we had to share books with numbers in the title.  This time around, however, I tried to find ten covers that actually had the number 10 in it in homage to Top Ten Tuesday turning 10 years old this week.  This was a little more challenging than I thought it would be, to be honest, and you’ll notice I cheated with a couple of Ten Thousand titles, haha.

In all seriousness though, Happy Birthday to Top Ten Tuesday.  This has been my favorite bookish meme since I started blogging. The topics are always fun, and I love that so many members of the bookish community take part each week. It has been the greatest way to meet fellow book lovers, and I hope it will be around for many years to come.

      I’ve heard good things about Ten Tiny Breaths. I’ve been wanting to read more from K.A. Tucker anyway so I hope to read this one at some point.

    Love the topic that you chose to do this week and it’s amazing that you managed to find all these titles! I would’ve definitely struggled but it makes me want to go to my Goodreads to see how many I could find on my lists 😂 I loved The Tenth Circle and can’t wait to read The Ten Thousand Doors of January! Great list 😀

    A wonderful way to honor the tenth TTT birthday. Thank you for all the titles. Some are new to me so I have something to discover. It seems that English books contain more often numbers in their titles than their German editions do. Happy reading and stay safe and well.

    Oh what a neat topic idea! I think it’s so incredible that this bookish meme has been around for so long and that it’s still such a fun way for people in the book community to do something together. Also–I still really need to read The Woman in Cabin 10!
